Courageous Living: A GIVEAWAY!

A few months ago the movie Courageous roared into theaters and blew viewers away! Opening weekend, the movie ranked #4 nationally and as of January 2012 has grossed over $34 million! But more importantly, it has impacted men and women to stand up for families, just as the movie, Fireproof, has done for marriage. 


Now with the anticipated DVD release of Courageous, on January 17, 2012 I want to re-introduce you to a few resources that are being promoted with the DVD release. These three resources are fantastic, and I am so glad to be able to share them with you again.  First I am excited to share with you the book, Courageous Living. You can see my full review here.




About Courageous Living:


In the new film COURAGEOUS (from the makers of Fireproof), four police officers are confident and focused when it comes to facing danger on the job. But leading their families at home in a God-honoring way? That takes courage.

Because it is important to take a faithful, fearless stand in so many areas of life, pastor and COURAGEOUS executive producer Michael Catt offers Courageous Living as a closer look at biblical themes and characters that inspired the greatly anticipated movie.

Catt brings fresh insight to "stories of people in the Bible who displayed great courage when it would have been easier to play it safe... (who) challenge me to keep moving forward. They demand that I examine my priorities and deal with anything that brings fear to my heart."

Readers will catch a new wind of bravery in the bold accounts of Abraham ("The Courage to Get Going"), Nehemiah ("The Courage to Face Criticism"), and Ruth ("The Courage to Face an Uncertain Future"). There are also growth opportunities in the stirring stories of Moses, Elijah, Joshua, Daniel, Gideon, Nehemiah, Stephen, and Paul and Timothy.



About The Author:


Michael Catt has served as senior pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia, since 1989 and is executive producer of the popular Facing the Giants and Fireproof films that originated from the congregation. He is the author of Prepare for Rain, Fireproof Your Life, The Power of Desperation, The Power of Persistence, and The Power of Surrender and is also founder of the ReFRESH™ revival conference. Michael and his wife, Terri, have two children.

  13. I have seen advertisements for this movie and thought that it would be a great one to see. The suthor is correct in that there are stories in the Bible of those who chose to be courageous rather than take the easy way out. I would like to read a some more about this viewpoint.
